getting it right for EVERY child/Every child matters
This was never about child protection...always about universal surveillance and it isn't just going to go away.
Lord Laming’s report following the Victoria Climbie inquiry, which is cited as the catalyst for children’s services reform in England was published on 28 January 2003.
Privacy and data-sharing: the way forward for public services ( http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/media/cabinetoffice/strategy/assets/piu%20data.pdf) – sets out (among other intended reforms) changes to children’s services which the public and professionals were led to believe were being instigated as a result of the Laming reports. It is dated 2002.
These forms (for EVERY child, their family and associated third parties) from Scotland's Girfec initiative bear an uncanny resemblance to the eCaf.

There has been a lot of effort and money put in to promoting the myth that the Scottish eCare/Girfec system is less intrusive than much of what is meant to be being dismantled in England (Contactpoint etc.).

"It seems that this parallels the Poll tax.
If something really smells, send it North for a trial. eCare is an EU programme , it appears, being test run on Scotland.
The Scots rebelled over the Poll Tax, why not eCare? Or don't Scots care about losing all their privacy and freedom?
Isn't it time for the clans to gather once more, and drive out the invading foreigner, determined to bring Scotland under the heel."
Beware of anything that tries to sell the Scottish system:
